6. WASHING HINTS
6.1 Sorting The Laundry
Follow the wash code symbols on
each garment label and the
manufacturer’s washing
instructions. Sort the laundry as
follows: whites, coloureds,
synthetics, delicates, woollens.
6.2 Temperatures
For heavily or normally
soiled white cottons and
90°C
linen (e.g. teacloths, towels,
tablecloths, sheets...).
For normally soiled,
colourfast garments (e.g.
shirts, night dresses,
60°C
pyjamas....) in linen, cotton
50°C
or synthetic fibres and for
lightly soiled white cotton
(e.g.underwear).
For delicate items (e.g. net
curtains), mixed laundry
40°C including synthetic fibres
30°C and woollens bearing the
Cold label pure new wool,
machine washable,
non-shrink.
6.3 Before Loading The
Laundry
Never wash whites and coloureds
together. Whites may lose their
“whiteness” in the wash.
New coloured items may run in the
first wash; they should therefore be
washed separately the first time.
Make sure that no metal objects
are left in the laundry (e.g. hair
clips, safety pins, pins).
Button up pillowcases, close zip
fasteners, hooks and poppers. Tie
any belts or long tapes.
Remove persistent stains before
washing.
Rub particularly soiled areas with a
special detergent or detergent paste.
Treat curtains with special care.
Remove hooks or tie them up in a
bag or a net.
ENGLISH
6.4 Maximum Loads
Recommended loads are indicated
in the program charts. General
rules:
Cotton, linen:
drum full but not
too tightly packed;
Synthetics,
Delicate:
drum no more
than half full;
woollens:
drum no more
than one third full.
Washing a maximum load makes
the most efficient use of water and
energy. For heavily soiled laundry,
reduce the load size.
6.5 Removing Stains
Stubborn stains may not be
removed by just water and
detergent. It is therefore advisable
to treat them prior to washing.
Blood: treat fresh stains with cold
water. For dried stains, soak
overnight in water with a special
detergent then rub in the soap and
water.
Oil based paint: moisten with
benzine stain remover, lay the
garment on a soft cloth and dab
the stain; treat several times.
Dried grease stains: moisten with
turpentine, lay the garment on a
soft surface and dab the stain with
the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot
water or a rust removing product
used in cold water. Be careful with
rust stains which are not recent
since the cellulose structure will
already have been damaged and
the fabric tends to hole.
19
Mould stains: treat with bleach,
rinse well (whites and fast
coloureds only).
Grass: soap lightly and treat with
bleach (whites and fast coloureds
only).
Ball point pen and glue: moisten
with acetone (*), lay the garment on
a soft cloth and dab the stain.
Lipstick: moisten with acetone (*)
as above, then treat stains with
methylated spirits. Remove any
residual marks from white fabrics
with bleach.
Red wine: soak in water and
detergent, rinse and treat with
acetic or citric acid, then rinse.
Treat any residual marks with
bleach.
Ink: depending on the type of ink,
moisten the fabric first with
acetone (*), then with acetic acid;
treat any residual marks on white
fabrics with bleach and then rinse
thoroughly.
Tar stains: first treat with stain
remover, methylated spirits or
benzine, then rub with detergent
paste.
(*) do not use acetone on artificial
silk.

6.6 Detergents Type and Quantity of
Detergent
Low sudsing detergent is required
for this washing machine to prevent
oversudsing problems, unsatisfied
washing result and harm to the
machine. Low sudsing detergents
designed for front load washing
machines are labelled “Front Loading”,
“high efficiency”, “HE”, such as Cold
Power for Front Loaders or “Matic”.
Do not use wrong types of detergent,
such as Top Loading, Handwash
detergent or Soap-Based products in
your frontload washing machine. This
can result in excessive suds, longer cycle
time, low spin speeds, poor rinsing and
overloading of the motor.
Quantity of detergent to be
used
The choice of detergent and use of
correct quantities not only affects your
washing performance, but helps to avoid
waste and protect the environment.
Although biodegradable, detergents
contain substances which, in large
quantities, can upset the delicate
balance of nature.
The choice and quantity of
detergent will depend on ;
type of fabric (delicates, woollens,
cottons, etc.) ;
the colour of clothes ;
size of the load ;
degree of soiling ;
washing temperature ; and
hardness of the water used.
Water hardness is classified by
so-called “degrees” of hardness.
Information on hardness of the water
in your area can be obtained from the
relevant water supply company, or
from your local authority.
You may have to try using the
detergent quantity as per the product
manufacturers’ instructions then
compare the washing result to the list
below and adjust the amount of
detergent for the next time accordingly.
Not enough washing powder
causes:
the washload to turn grey,
greasy clothes.
Too much washing powder causes:
sudsing,
reduced washing effect,
inadequate rinsing.
Use less detergent if:
you are washing a small load,
the laundry is lightly soiled,
large amounts of foam during
washing.
NOTE:
Use only low sudsing front load
type detergents and REDUCE
the amount of detergent if
oversudsing occurs.

8. CARE AND CLEANING
WARNING!
You must DISCONNECT the
appliance from the electricity
supply, before you can carry out
any cleaning or maintenance
work.
8.1 External Cleaning
Clean the appliance only with soap
and warm water. Fully dry all the
surfaces.
CAUTION!
Do not use alcohol, solvents or
chemical products.
8.2 Descaling
The water we use normally
contains lime. It is a good idea to
periodically use a water softening
powder in the machine.
To run a maintenance wash:
The drum should be empty of
laundry.
Select the hottest wash program.
Use a normal measure of
detergent, must be a powder
with biological properties.
Press Start/Pause to start the
program.
8.5 Cleaning The Dispenser
Drawer
The washing powder and additive
dispenser drawer should be
cleaned regularly. Remove the
drawer by pushing the catch and
pulling it out. Flush it out under a
tap, to remove any traces of
accumulated powder.
Do this separately from any laundry
washing, and according to the
softening powder manufacturer's
instructions.
This will help to prevent the
formation of lime deposits.
8.3 After Each Wash
Leave the door open for a while.
This helps to prevent mould and
stagnant smells forming inside the
appliance. Keeping the door open
after a wash will also help to
preserve the door seal.
8.4 Maintenance Wash
With the use of low temperature
washes it is possible to get a build
up of residues inside the drum.
We recommend that a
maintenance wash be performed
on a regular basis.
To aid cleaning, the top part of the
additive compartment should be
removed.
ENGLISH
23
8.6 Cleaning The Drawer Bottom
After washing cycle finish, residues
of softener and water may remain
in the softener dispenser. It is
recommended to clean the bottom
of softener dispenser regularly to
remove any residue.
To clean the bottom of softener
dispenser:
1. After pulling out the drawer
from its recess, turn the bottom
side up.
4. Close the softener bottom
cover.
8.7 Cleaning The Drawer Recess
2. Push the catch and pull up the
softener bottom cover.
Having removed the drawer, use
a small brush to clean the recess,
ensuring that all washing powder
residue is removed from the
upper and lower part of the
recess. Replace the drawer and
run the rinse program without any
clothes in the drum.
8.8 Cleaning The Water Inlet
Filter
3. Clean the dispenser with an old
toothbrush under the water tap.
If your water is very hard or
contains traces of lime deposit, the
water inlet filter may become
clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean
it from time to time.
24
www.electrolux.com
To clean the water inlet filters:
1. Close the water tap.
8.9 The Dangers Of Freezing
2. Remove the water inlet hose from
the water tap.
If the machine is exposed to
temperatures below 0°C, certain
precautions should be taken.
3. Clean the filter
in the inlet hose
with a stiff
brush.
Do this procedure also when you
want to do the emergency drain.
4. Remove the inlet hose behind
the appliance.
5. Clean the filter in the valve with
a stiff brush or a towel.
Disconnect the mains plug from
the mains socket.
1. Turn off the water tap.
2. Unscrew the inlet hose.
3. Remove the drain hose from
the rear support and unhook it
from sink or spigot.
4. Put the ends of the drain and
inlet hose in a container. Let
the water flow out of the hoses.
6. Install again the inlet hose.
Make sure that the couplings are
tight to prevent leakages.
5. When no more water flows,
install the inlet hose and the
drain hose again.

11.2 Positioning
IMPORTANT
It is important that your
washing machine stands firm
and level on the floor to ensure
correct operation.
The appliance must not be installed
behind a lockable door, a sliding
door or a door with a hinge on the
opposite side so that the washing
machine door is restricted.
Use a spirit level on the top and
side of the washing machine to
check the levels.
ENGLISH
31
Never place cardboard, wood or
similar materials under the machine
to compensate for any unevenness
in the floor.
If you do not have a spirit level, as a
guide use the edge of a door frame,
cupboard or bench to check that
the washing machine is level.
Loosen or tighten the feet to adjust
the level. A correct adjustment of
the appliance level prevents the
vibration, noise and the movement
of the appliance when in operation.
Install the machine on a flat hard
floor. Make sure that air circulation
around the machine is not
impeded by carpets, rugs etc.
Check that the machine does not
touch the wall or cupboard units.
11.3 Water Inlet
Connect the water inlet hose to a
tap with 3/4” BSP thread.
Use the hose supplied with the
washing machine. DO NOT USE
OLD HOSES.
The other end of the inlet hose
which connects to the machine
can be turned in any direction.
Simply loosen the fitting, rotate the
hose and retighten the fitting,
making sure there are no water
leaks.
When the washing machine is
levelled, try to rock it from corner
to corner. If it does rock, adjust the
legs again until it is levelled and
does not rock.
32
www.electrolux.com
The inlet hose must not be
lengthened. If it is too short and
you do not wish to move the tap,
you will have to purchase a new,
longer hose specially designed for
this type of use.
11.4 Water Drainage
The end of the drain hose can be
positioned in three ways:
Hooked over the edge of a sink
using the plastic hose guide
supplied with the machine.
For correct functioning of the
machine the drain hose must
remain hooked on the proper
support piece situated on the top
part of back side of the appliance.
11.5 Electrical Connection
This machine is designed to
operate on a 220 V, single-phase,
60 Hz supply.
Please check rated power
supply condition that is
mentioned on the Rating
Label before you connect
to the power supply.
In this case, make sure the end
cannot come unhooked when
the machine is emptying.
This could be done by tying it to
the tap with a piece of string or
attaching it to the wall.
In a sink drain pipe branch. This
branch must be above the trap
so that the bend is at least 60 cm
above the ground.
Directly into a drain pipe at a
height of no less than 60 cm
and no more than 90 cm. The
end of the drain hose must
always be ventilated, i.e. the
inside diameter of the drain pipe
must be larger than the outside
diameter of the drain hose.
The drain hose must not be
kinked. Run it along the floor, only
the part near the drainage point
must be raised.
“An incorrect power
supply may void your
warranty.”
Check that your domestic electrical
installation can take the maximum
load required (1.7 kW), also taking
into account any other appliances
in use.
Connect the machine to
an earthed socket outlet.
The manufacturer declines any
responsibility for damage or injury
through failure to comply with the
above safety precaution.
If the supply cord is
damaged, should the
appliance power supply
cable need to be replaced,
this shall be carried out by
our Service Centre.
ENGLISH
When the appliance is installed
the power supply cable must be
easily accessible.
33
If this appliance is supplied from a
cord extension set or electrical
portable outlet device, the cord
extension set or electrical portable
device must be positioned so that
it is not subject to splashing or
ingress of moisture.

12.3 Ecological Hints
To save water, energy and to help
protect the environment, we
recommend that you follow these
tips:
Normally soiled laundry may be
washed without prewashing in
order to save detergent, water
and time (the environment is
protected too!).
The machine works more
economically if it is fully loaded.
With adequate pre-treatment,
stains and limited soiling can
be removed; the laundry can
then be washed at a lower
temperature.
Measure out detergent
according to the water
hardness, the degree of soiling
and the quantity of laundry
being washed.
